the ability to cause us taxpayers to have to pay them for the right to protect our environment and our water supply and our climate and human rights and wages and things like that. so this is absolutely outrageous. if we could go back to a system of one person, one vote, and have a real free press that enabled us to communicate and inform each other this would be a wonderful idea. unfortunately we're not there right now, so political parties in my view allow us to work together around the shared agenda. and the green party is really the one political party that is not funded by corporate money, by money that's coming from special interests. so in my way it's a way -- view it's a way for us to work together on our lives, future, education, our health and environment. host: according to the latest fcc records you received a recent installment of about $160,000, part of the matching funds still in place for those candidates who agree to accept matching funds. is that a enough money to spread the green party message? guest: we have a different way of approaching this. the big parties use tv adve

, it's 9/11, it's americans in a hostile environment, and on our territory, a consulate in libya, yet they went out with the youtube and they stuck with it for so many days. you know, even without the ability of intelligence, i would have at least couched it differently. >> well, you're quite right. they made a terrible mistake. i think what they did was, you know, hope springs eternal. they wanted it to be the youtube and they -- it was much more convenient from the administration's standpoint to have it be the film that nobody's seen. and yet it demonstrated such serious misjudgments on their part to think that they could make it be the youtube, which it wasn't obviously, as time's gone by, and i quite agree with you, that anyone looking at it, knowing the history of september 11th, would at least have registered that that could very well have been part of an organized attack, which apparently now people in the administration have acknowledged, that it was a planned attack. >> greta: is 3is there a conseqe of a misjudgment, or is it something we all chatter about it among ourselves?
's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hi
to adjust to a slower growth environment. we've seen much lower inventory levels. we've seen underinvest inspemen capital, which is creating a bit of tail wind going into next year. interestingly enough, asia is in the same state. what is worrisome is companies haven't adjusted to the possibility of slower growth next year. >> peter, what are you looking for next week? what should we be watching for? >> i think the next three weeks is solely earnings. for two months we've had central banks putting goggles on our eyes. now the fundamentals can't be ignored anymore. they're out from under the rug. we get to hear what the guidance is going forward. >> so peter, on tuesday we're going to see angela merkel in greece. there's going to be horrendous protests, tear gas. we can just imagine. yet, we're going to be able to look through that and focus on the domestic earnings front here? >> the greek stock market was up 12% this week. the bond that's maturing at 11 years is at a high. i think everyone's beginning to it realize that greece is going to be given some slack because there's no other cho
. >> sure. >> so as you look forward, how do you invest in an environment that looks like we're going to have easy money for a long time? you've kind of changed the typical asset allocation most people go to. >> oh, yeah, it's a crazy world. at oppenheimer we're talking about the new 60/40. people's portfolios are perfectly positioned for the past. they're positioned for 2008. we're still seeing 30 billion a quarter flowing into core bond funds, which are yielding negative in real terms, below inflation. that's madness from our point of view. investors have to understand that the notion of what is safe and what is risky has to be adjusted a little bit. safe doesn't mean securities that have a lot of interest rate risk and no yield. that is not what safety means to us today. again, given the plentiful liquidity and what we think is a moderate global recovery, we think it's safe to move out into more credit-oriented investments, more higher income investments. >> high yield corporate? >> high yield continues to look good in our view. it's come that lot but far from how tight it can get.
